Liner notes
Credits of the episodes/songs.

  • Song Machine is a web series released on Gorillaz' YouTube channel (and as an audio download/stream on various music services). Each monthly episode features a new Gorillaz song and footage from its creation process. The episodes are accompanied by 'Machine Bitez' where Gorillaz briefly chat with their collaborators.
  • Russel described the project: "Song Machine is a whole new way of doing what we do. Gorillaz breaking the mold 'cos the mold got old. World is moving faster than a supercharged particle, so we've gotta stay ready to drop. We don't even know who's stepping through the studio next. Song Machine feeds on the unknown, runs on pure chaos. So whatever the hell's coming, we're primed and ready to produce like there's no tomorrow. Y'know, just in case..."
  • Possible featured artists include: Flume, Guilty Beatz, The Horrors, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Joan As Police Woman, JPEGMAFIA, Massive Attack, Moonchild Sanelly, Sampa the Great, ScHoolboy Q and Tame Impala.
  • According to Damon Albarn, there will be 10-13 episodes/songs per each season of Song Machine. As of early February, around six episodes have already been recorded for the project. The series will continue until the band "run out of ideas", according to Damon.
  • During the making of Song Machine, Veikko's Blur Page will gather comments from the people who are involved in the project.
